IDLE THOUGHTS
=============
9/19 Detroit upsets Dallas, 8-4, to reduce its magic number to two. Dallas
     is essentially out of the division title race.  Dallas has lost 6
     road games in a row.
9/20 Portland's loss puts three more teams into the playoffs:  Anaheim,
     Sacramento, and Washington.  Houston (17-9) and Monterrey keep pace
     with each other with wins.  Anahiem held on to beat Sacramento (13-13)
     for the third time this season, 5-4.  Monterrey has won 7 of the last
     8 games with a 7-4 victory over Indianapolis, who became the first
     team to be eliminated from the playoffs.  Houston won its third
     straight to match Monterrey win for win with a 9-6 victory over
     Portland.
9/21 With both Seattle and Portland losing, Detroit becomes the 8th and
     final team to clinch a playoff berth.  Dallas (15-12) routs Portland
     (10-17), who were at one time 10-14, 1.5 games out of the playoff race.
     Dallas has now won its last 12 games at home in Reunion Arena.
     Indy (9-17) extends Washington's (12-14) losing streak to 4 with an
     8-3 surprise victoy at USAir Arena.  San Diego (16-10) clinched the
     Western Division title with an overtime shootout win over Seattle.
9/22 Monterrey (18-9) moves into sole possession of first place, winning
     8 of its last 9 games by beating Detroit (12-14), 9-3.  Anaheim
     (14-12) kept its hope of getting the fourth seed alive by squeaking
     by Seattle (9-18), who now has the worst record in the league,
     6-5, in overtime to win its third straight.
